        My husband and I booked a Sydney Layover Tour with a Local on our way to Tasmania. We really only had a short stay between flights! Our tour guide John was on the ball. The company reached out early with plenty of time asking us for our interests. With the time and interests they crafted an itinerary for us to review and adjust as needed. John met us at the airport and helped us to navigate the public transportation and locate luggage storage, that he scoped out for us to use. John was a great tour guide for us! Very helpful and knowledgeable. I really felt I had a local guiding me. Good, friendly rapport, John made friends with everyone and generally enjoys talking with people. It was a very good introduction to how nice the people of Australia are! He is very into local activities and government and was happy to explain things to us that we would not have known about. When we walked down a street that had a historic display that was removed he immediately knew which city representative he was going to reach out as soon as the tour was done. At first he seemed a little scattered brained and I had a hard time piecing together the history he was telling. To be fair I had slept sitting up on a plane from the states so I wasn't thinking the most clear either! Once I got used to his style it started to make a lot more sense and I really enjoyed talking with him. From John I get the sense that the tour guides really care about the work they do and take a lot of pride in it. On the tour John showed us a lot of things he had paid out of pocket to preview in advance, and since he had gone the extra mile was able to explain to us what these locations were. For the tour itself it's important to remember that you are paying for the local guide, and any other activities are not included even the ones the guide has worked with you on to make your itinerary. My husband had planned it so I wasn't aware of that coming in to it. Despite the cost, for us to have our 10 hour layover (total to go through customs, and back through on a flight) and get a Sydney experience I think we got to see as much as we did because we had a local tour guide helping us get on trains, ferries, navigating walkways, etc. It would have taken us a lot of research and time to get an experience like we had on our tour in such a short time.

        I was pleasantly surprised with the day tour. Our guide John covered all the must sees with us where we learnt so much about the history of Australia whilst visiting the historical monuments and walking around the city. We visited the Opera house, Mrs Macquire’s bench, Hyde Park, Botanical Gardens, the Art Museum and the library and also stopped by key landmarks. We were given several opportunities to capture views of the Harbour and the Opera House. We also got the chance to experience local transportation to the area of New Town which was quite different to the city area. Our tour guide went above and beyond to accommodate our needs and he was very pleasant to spend the day with. I highly recommend this tour if you would like to experience Sydney in a day.
